A few yards of yarn
1 x 5mm diffused LED
Small piece of material that doesn't fray (I used scrap leather)
3 x metal head pins or a small length of wire
6" length of conductive thread
chain with clasp
3v button cell battery
feathers or other embellishments (optional)
hot glue gun
small crochet hook (I used size E)
Step 1: Crocheting the flower
Ch 6, sl st into 1st ch to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 1, work 15 sc into ring, sl st in 1st sc.
Round 2: *Ch 3, work dc2tog over next 2 stitches, ch 3, sl st in next sc*, rep from * to * for a total of 5 times, placing last sl st in sl st from previous round.
Step 2: Creating the battery pouch
I decided to make the design for this pendant as simple as possible; for this reason, there is no switch to turn the light on and off. It uses cheap, readily available coin cell batteries (I have purchased them on eBay at about $1 for a pack of 6). When the battery is in the pouch, the light stays on; remove it to turn the pendant off.
I used scrap leather because I had some laying around, any non-fraying material will do. Fold your material in half, and cut a solid "U" shape. You should have two matching pieces.
